Ok i had a really idea for a great Caelereth RPG game idea.

Ok basically this is what it would be and how it would work. You'd first of all register an account, a user name and password. Once you've done this you'd then create your character Profile, this would include a model of you character and a profile. So they'd be a choice of torso's trousers and weapons to choose from ect.
Once you've made your character you'd then start the game. The game would be a click game, meaning the wouldn't be any major graphics in it.
So now your logged in, you now get the option to either go north east south or west. Lets pretend i went north. It would then come up with another screen saying something like;

Zelnen was walking through the forest of Akdor when he heard some distant cry's in the distance. Do you

A. Go over to investigate

B. Just ignore it and walk away

C. Run over there with Sword drawn and attack!

You'd then pick your choice. Lets say i picked A, it would then generate a new screen saying something like

You creep through the bushes and see 3 Orc's robbing an elven woman. What do you do?

A. Go back and forget about it

B. Attack the orcs

C. Create a diversion to allow the woman to escape

Lets say i pick B it would then say something like

You jump out sword drawn and advance on the 3 orcs.

It would then randomly select the next screen, either you die, which means you start again, or you live, and gain some levels.

So thats the main frame of the game. There will be alot of random scenes like that and when you pick your direction to walk in it will randomly generate one of the scenes. You would also have levels, and you would gain levels judging on every option you do eg.

( These would be the levels )

Combat:
Citizenship:
Heroism:
Wimpness:

I would then get some xp for going to investigate the scene, i would also get heroism and combat lvl for attacking the orcs. My levels would now look something like:

Combat:2
Citizenship:1
Heroism:1
Wimpness:0

I could now choose to save the game, that would save my levels. If i'd died in the fight all my levels would have been reset.

So that would be the basic game idea. Once it was up we could then add on basic add on's. Here's a few idea's.

We could have a bar at the bottom of the screen saying how many other people are travelling the world of Caelereth. Then when you are travelling a random screen might pop up saying you've crossed paths with another player, do you wish to chat with them?

You could then chat with them or just move along.

Some more add on's would be things like being able to get weapons and armour to up your chances in a fight.

Another add on could be, the further you venture you enter different parts of Caeledreth.

Then once the game is a big hit we could to start to add in good graphics and more levels.

So what do you think?

I'd cover the main html code for the game and then some of you could make scenes and stuff. So please comment and if an admin thinks it's a good idea we can chat more about it and then maybe i can get started!

um... I think you may be a bit confused about the types of games we have here. I'm sure someone more responsible than I will bother explaining in full, but since you seem to be into the more dungeon crawly RPGs I'll share with you a link I found before coming here.

www.hollowgame.com/

You may like it, it has that kind of interface and chat, enemies, attack tenchniques, etc. It wasn't MY cup of +9/+9 awesome fun, but may be yours.

Soon my enemies will be consumed by flame...

I know that Santharian doesn't have these sort of games. That's why i posted this!

Why don't we bring these sort of games, it will attract more people in, and it will be a fun way to explore the world of Caelereth.

Santharia WAS going to have a RPG similar to this... It was dropped however and is not likely to start up again in the forseeable.

Yeah i know, but to start with we'd make it really simple. When it's finished it would be worth it. I'd do all the code and everything, all i'd need you guys to do is write some scenes then email them to me. I could then put it into code. I'd also need some artists to draw some of the graphics for me.

This is something which you would bring up with the Webmaster of this site, Artimidor. Yet this is specifically a post by post rpg world, I don't see that changing in the foreseeable future, and they are also working something, or had been on the development board. I am not sure of its status or if they have even decided do it at all.

Kalina - that was the Sorren project I believe which got scrapped due to... Disagreements.

Zelnen - what you are proposing is no mean feat, and would need to include more than just HTML to make effectively.

Ah, okies.

As Aylix said, it is no mean feat and you see what happened to the last one which was being created.

This would most likely take much longer than you would like and we cannot guarantee it would be approved overall by the admins and the webmaster.

Also this world is not just like any gaming world. We pride ourselves in the years it has taken us to develop it to this point and we want to find people who see it the way we do, not to simply play in it but learn in it as well. What you propose would take away part of the purpose of this site and meaning it has to many people.

*noddles* Also, I think a lot of the "heart" of Santharia would be lost on people who come just to play some point and click game with slick graphics. Sure, some of them might be drawn to the RPG and Dev board, but I think it would really just be taken for granted. And I mean, just look at this place! It'd be very sad to see the Dream become like that.

I mean... who respects that poor man who sat in his basement for months and came up with the idea to link aggro on those filthy murlocs? Who? Well... no one, because everybody hates murlocs.... but you get the point.

Hmm i guess you all have a point. I've tried to get a few of my friends interested into this site but they didn't really like it. I love it for what it is, i was just thinking of ways to improve it.

Also of course it would take more than html, i know how to use html CSS BB php and a few others.

Anyway just forget i posted this, i guess we don't want to attract people who are just coming here for the game, we want people who will RP on the forum.

Ok so just forget i posted this.

There was an attempt to do such a game after our Sorren experience, we worked together with Legentary Tales. They did all the encoding, Artimidor wrote a dialgue converter etc and we had already quite a nice start - Mimi for example, one of my chars was created especially for it. But it is a tremendous lot of work and we didn't have enough writers to set it up. This game board is still here, but hidden, for it doesn't look good, if there is no activity for a year or more.
